    Many people have been pleased to hear that Facebook is now allowing users to choose full SSL/HTTPS encryption throughout their session to prevent their accounts from being compromised through unencrypted WiFi using tools like Firesheep.

    As of the time of this article (January 28, 2011) only a fraction of all Facebook accounts have been enabled to use this option. We expect it to be available to all Facebook users in a short amount of time.


    Guys at SOPHOS made a video on how to enable this feature.
